Description

robably one of the most loved wildflowers in the US, Indian Paintbrush can be grown in much of North America, and is extremely tolerant of poor soils and drought. Absolutely gorgeous orange-red flowers adorn this hardy perennial! A very valuable plant for adding color, and easy to care for too! Indian Paintbrush is host to several different species of butterflies.

It is hemiparasitic, obtaining water and nutrients from other plants by tapping their roots. Grasses and sedges makes good host plants. Plants should be planted at the same time, or if the host plant is already established the seeds can be scattered at the base of the plant if the lower part of the plant is slightly bruised (knife works well).

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 24"

Location: Sun

Hardiness zones: 4-9

Seeds per pack: 10

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Do not bury the seeds as they require light for germination. Sow the seeds on the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally 60-120 days after the warming period, though it can vary.
